The letter contains info such as;

- Reporting dates

How to transfer from one university to another
Applicants who will wish to transfer to other institutions will be given a one-month window to explore alternative options. Applications for inter-university transfer are usually done through the KUCCPS student’s application portal. ( www.students.kuccps.ac.ke ) The Inter-University / College transfer will be considered only if the applicant meets the cut off for the course they want to move to and there is still capacity in that course.
